A Humanities Approach to Early National U.S. History: Activities and Resources for the Elementary School Teacher.
Giese, James R., Ed.; Parisi, Lynn S., Ed.
The book presents a framework that can be used to teach a survey of United States history from an integrated humanities perspective. Aimed at teachers of grade 5, it emphasizes the early national period, 1790-1830. The volume contains 22 activities presented in a standard format: a brief introduction describing the activity, list of objectives, estimated time of the activity, necessary materials, step-by-step implementation procedures, and hand-out masters. Several of the activities include examining artifacts, making hornbooks, candlemaking, constructing a Children's Bill of Rights, singing, charting a family tree, mapwork, and discussion of readings. The book concludes with two lists of resources, including ERIC system documents and a selected bibliography. (TRS)
